The Hot App of the Week is the Wedding Party app available on Android and iPhone. I was at a wedding this weekend and on the program it asks people to download the app and take pictures throughout their day. I love taking photos and really got into seeing other people's pictures as well as my own through the wedding day news feed.
I went through FOUR costume changes this Halloween... I think that sets a record for me! Check them out...
Pirate, (pregnant) nun, old lady, senorita.
Send me YOUR pictures at Jillene@WLLR.com!
Check out the video for "Sweet Annie," by the Zac Brown Band and take your front row seat at the wedding of ZBB's Coy Bowles and his beautiful bride, Kylie! See the band, their friends and family be a part of the gypsy fantasy land ceremony. Watch Coy and Kylie say 'I do,' then join them all at an amazing reception for Zac Brown Band's latest music video, "Sweet Annie."
"There was a lot of planning that went into this wedding, and a lot of hard work on many people's efforts. The sun and weather could not have been more perfect. Kylie, my wife, really out did herself creatively on the vibe and look of the wedding. She had a vision of what she wanted the wedding to look like. With the help of others, including Shelly Brown who helped design her dress, we were really able to pull of this relaxing, gypsy fantasy land of a wedding." - Coy Bowles

I was talking to my mom this morning about my sister-in-laws new job as a labor & delivery nurse...
Mom: "I hope she doesn't like what she sees. She's my only chance at grandkids."
Me: "Ummmmmm, mom... what about ME?! Remember me, your daughter??"
Mom: "Well, by the time you meet someone, get married and have kids... I'll probably be dead!"
Now, my mom has hinted at the fact that this is how she feels, but she's never actually came out and said it. She was serious! Haha... your mother ever said something like this to you? Call me at 563-359-9557 or email me at Jillene@WLLR.com!

Well, this could get awkward.
Randi Zuckerberg, the sister of famed Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, is publishing a new children's book. The subject: getting kids offline.
Out November 5, "Dot" uses an eponymous character to help readers navigate the challenges of growing up in the digital age.
"Dot loves technology. A LOT," wrote Zuckerberg in her blog. "She’s obsessed with her devices (sound familiar?), but with a little push, she’s reminded that life’s a little bit richer when you look up from the screen." In a promo video, Dot even redefines "sharing" by giving a cookie to her dog.
